A Dangerous-Space In Rockford

Rockford, Il – (ProLifeCorner.com) – 6-25-2012 – by Rockford Pro-Life Initiative – Christians began to realize something was deeply wrong with a place in Rockford called Woman’s Space when it was learned one of the founders and now Executive Director Sister Elaine Hirschenberger,  presided at the funeral service for , Kate Trainer, a longtime abortion advocate and employee of the notorious Rockford abortion mill.   Over the years Woman’s Space has had numerous new age speakers and programs featuring radical feminism and paganism.

Woman’s Space also works closely with the Unitarian Church in Rockford–the same Unitarian Church that holds monthly meeting of the Winnebago County Citizens for Choice. This is an organization that was well known for blocking mothers from hearing about alternatives to abortion or receiving help outside of Rockford’s now disgraced and closed abortion mill.

Two events Woman’s Space is holding this summer are strange to say the least. One is called “Praying with images of the divine. The Woman’s Space website describes it as “mystical encounters with the divine feminine that will feed your soul” and how a woman became the great mother by combining ancient mythology, dreams, Catholicism, and Native American shamanism.

The second event is called “Fairy Festival” and is described as an evening of fairies and magic.

Just this past weekend in the Rockford Register Star, Woman’s Space Development Director Sister Dorothy Bock said rather contemptuously about the Catholic Church, “Some of the rules and regs are becoming rather narrow so I have to find my own religious freedom and use of my own conscience.”

It is painfully clear the “Sisters” who founded and run Woman’s Space in Rockford have found their own brand of religious freedom and follow their own self-formed conscience that seem to include paganism and radical feminism. Their consciences seem to have no problem in partnering with the radically pro-abortion Unitarian church in Rockford.

This would make Woman’s Space a very dangerous place for any person who believes in the Church or the gospel of Jesus Christ.

  1. Thank you for reporting on this. People deserve to know the truth. Even though womans space was started by two catholic sisters their is nothing catholic about it at all. Great job reporting!

  2. Sister Bock said, “I’m a member of the Catholic Church, and right now some of the rules and regs are becoming rather narrow so I have to find my own religious freedom and use of my own conscience.”

    It is interesting to note that Jesus Himself said, “”Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it.” Matthew 7:13

    Yes, much our Christian faith is challenging and difficult to live. That is the way God designed it to help us grow in faith, hope, and love. It is easy to claim our conscience allows us to ignore the teaching of Christ and our Church. But in the end that is the broad road that leads to the destruction of our soul.

    In Jesus’ own words, “Narrow is the gate that leads to eternal life.”

  3. When people say they follow their consciences it is an excuse to ignore what the Bible or Church teach. What they realy mean is they are following thier feelings.
    They are trying to recreate God in their own image according to what they “feel.”

    Hitler followed his consciences/feeling and that did not turn out very well.

  4. If they are going to be new age then go ahead. They should not mix the christian faith with the new age. The Bible clearly tells us not to engage in this kind of spirit worship.

  5. “how a woman became the great mother by combining ancient mythology, dreams, Catholicism, and Native American shamanism.”
    WHAT THE??????

  6. Very disturbing story about the direction the Sisters are taking, although they have been leaning very liberal in the past few years. So sad. Let’s pray for them that their minds and hearts will be open to God’s teachings.

    • How about just call the Bishop and have him forbid them to operate in your Diocese. After all if Michael Vorhes can no longer use “Catholic” in his companies name because he exposes so much garbage in the Church then it would only be right to give these two has-been new age wannabees the big boot right up the the backside of their pant suits.

  7. It all comes down to obedience. God tells us to be obedient to Him only and in that we will find happiness and peace. These women do not want to be obedient to Him and His laws. Simple as that!! A commandment says to worship only Him; well, we can see these women are not doing that! They are not practicing catholics; they are witches and are practicing witch craft and worshiping Satan.

  8. I have been aware of the beliefs of these two women

    I have been aware of the beliefs of these two women {I just can’t bring myself to
    call them Sisters} for many, many years, I was really surprised to see that Ms.
    Bock was recognized in the Observer. I thought they surely would have known
    that these women are catholic in name only.
